         CROSSCULTURAL, LANGUAGE, AND ACADEMIC DEVELOPMENT (CLAD) CERTIFICATE


CLAD Certificates authorize instruction to English Learners (EL). For a summary of all documents that authorize
instruction to EL students, see the Serving English Learners leaflet, CL-622. The section below lists the types of
instruction authorized by the CLAD Certificate. Each type of instruction is defined below.

Types of Instruction to English Learners Authorized by the CLAD Certificate
         Instruction for English Language Development (ELD)
         Specially Designed Academic Instruction Delivered in English (SDAIE)
With most prerequisite credentials or permits, English Language Development (ELD) is authorized at preschool and
grades K–12. With a Children’s Center Instructional Permit, Children’s Center Supervision Permit, or Child Development
Permit, ELD is limited to the programs authorized by the permit. With a Designated Subjects Teaching Credential in adult
education, ELD is limited to classes organized primarily for adults. With all prerequisite credentials or permits, Specially
Designed Academic Instruction Delivered in English (SDAIE) is authorized in subjects and grade levels of the
prerequisite credential or permit.

Definitions of Types of Instruction
Instruction for English Language Development (ELD) means instruction designed specifically for EL students to develop
their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in English. This type of instruction is also known as English as a
Second Language (ESL) or Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
Specially Designed Academic Instruction Delivered in English (SDAIE) means instruction in a subject area delivered in
English, that is specially designed to provide EL students with access to the curriculum.

Requirements for the CLAD Certificate
   1. Possess a valid California teaching credential, Clinical Rehabilitative Services Credential with a Special Class
      Authorization, School Nurse Services Credential with a Special Teaching Authorization in Health, Children’s
      Center Permit (excluding emergency), or Child Development Permit (excluding Assistant and Associate Permit)
      that authorizes the holder to provide instruction to pupils in preschool, grades K–12, or classes primarily
      organized for adults. The following, however, are not appropriate prerequisite credentials or permits: Emergency
      Permits, Provisional Internship Permits, Short-Term Staff Permits, District Intern Credentials, University
      Internship Credentials, Exchange Credentials, Sojourn Certificated Employee Credentials, or Services Credentials
      that do not authorize instruction.
   2. Satisfy the CLAD second language requirement. Individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree from a regionally-
      accredited college or university are deemed to have satisfied the second language requirement. Applicants that do
      not hold a bachelor’s degree should refer to the options A-P listed later in this leaflet.
    3.   Verify one of the following:
            a. passing scores on Tests 1, 2, and 3 of the CLAD/BCLAD Examination (scores used for certification
                 purposes may be no older than five years from the individual passed test date)
            b. passing scores on Tests 1, 2 and 3 of the CTEL Examination (scores used for certification purposes may
                 be no older than five years from the individual passed test date)
            c. complete 12 semester units of upper division college course work (24 semester units if lower division
                 units are used) in domains 1-3, as described below
            d. possess a Supplementary Authorization in English as a Second Language (no longer initially issued as of
                 July 1, 1996) and complete three semester units of college course work in the theories and methods of
                 SDAIE or possess a Certificate of Completion of a 45-hour SDAIE program conducted by a California
                 school district

               e.   possess a Certificate of Completion of Staff Development under SB 1969 issued by a school district or
                    county office of education, or a Certificate of Completion of Staff Development issued by the
                    Commission, and 9 semester units of upper division college course work that meet Domains 2 and 3 as
                    described below. (Each 45-hour program satisfies 3 upper-division semester units and Domain 1 of the
                    CLAD Certificate requirements.)

    Teachers who hold a valid Language Development Specialist (LDS) Certificate may exchange their LDS Certificate
    for a CLAD Certificate by submitting their original LDS Certificate, or a statement verifying that their LDS
    Certificate has been lost or destroyed, with an application (form 41-4) and one-half of the current application fee.
    This exchange is not required. LDS Certificates will remain valid as long as the teacher’s prerequisite teaching
    credential remains valid.

Out-of-State Trained Individuals with English Learner Authorizations
Individuals who hold an English learner authorization from a state other than California may apply directly to the
Commission for a CLAD Certificate. Submit a copy of the out-of-state credential verifying the EL authorization, an
application (form 41-4), and current processing fees. Individuals must have a valid California prerequisite credential on
file before a CLAD Certificate will be issued. If an individual is applying for a Multiple Subject, Single Subject, or
Education Specialist Teaching Credential and evidence of the out-of-state English learner authorization is submitted with
that application packet, there is no need to apply for a CLAD Certificate; the English learner authorization will be listed
on the teaching credential. There is no need to submit a separate application and fee if applying via this method.
Earning a CLAD Certificate through College Course Work
Earning a CLAD Certificate through college course work is an alternative to earning the certificate by examinations. If
you satisfy the course work requirement for a CLAD Certificate, you do not need to take the CTEL Examination to earn a
CLAD Certificate. Individuals must hold the appropriate prerequisite credential or permit and, for those without a
bachelor’s degree, satisfy the CLAD second language requirement.
If you choose the course work route for earning a CLAD Certificate, you must verify completion of one of the following:
    1. 12 upper-division or graduate semester units
    2. 18 upper-division or graduate quarter units
    3. If any lower-division units are being used to qualify, a total of 24 semester units or 36 quarter units are required

The course work must be applicable toward a bachelor’s or higher degree at a regionally-accredited college or university.
A grade of “C” or higher, “Pass,” or “Credit” must be earned in each course. All of the course work must be in
CLAD/BCLAD domains 1–3 described below, and all three of the domains must be covered in the course work taken.
Domain 1
Language structure and first and second language development, including the following:
       Language structure and use: universals and differences (including the structure of English)
       Theories and factors in first and second language development
Domain 2
Methodology of bilingual instruction, instruction for English language development, and specially designed academic
instruction delivered in English, including the following:
         Theories and methods of bilingual education
         Theories and methods of instruction for English language development
         Theories and methods of specially designed academic instruction delivered in English
         Language and content area assessment
Domain 3
Culture and cultural diversity, including the following:
        Nature and content of culture
        Crosscultural contact and interactions
        Cultural diversity in the United States and California
        Providing culturally responsive instruction
